Aburi botanical gardens is a beautiful and serene place to visit for nature lovers like me! The weather is just right and the sights a beauty to behold. The winding road that takes you up hill to the gardens definitely preps you for the beauty ahead.. the tall trees that line the entrance sure gives it a surreal feeling. It... More

Heli wreck picture is painted here but it is not in reality. However, the garden is stunning. My favorite part is the cocoa garden, and nutmeg trees.

If one is in Accra, the Gardens are a must see. Historical roots back to the 1920's and a lovely walk through a fascinating grove

This place is not so far from the city but yet is a beautiful place feeling like your far far away, If you ever need time out this is the place to go.

I have visited here many years ago and not much has changed. A fantastic entrance to the gardens with photo opportunities abound, so much to see, learn and experience. There are also a number of eateries in the space, we visited the one past the guest house for plantain, yam, rice and red red. We were shown around and educated... More

Wasn't really too excited to go here as not really something I am interested in. We were staying in Osu, Accra and it took us about an hour or so to get there. Was an interesting drive up there just seeing different area's. Can't recall the price sorry but it was minimal. Parking no issue and we had a guide... More

We drove from Accra to experience a beautiful botanical garden in the highlands. What we found was a poorly maintained, old sanatorium that needs MUCH attention and clean up. The entry price was reasonable at 10 cedi but the tour guide was a rip off for the short time and poor information he shared with us. Save your money and... More
